Sweeping into fall

New School Montessori (3-6) students are sweeping into fall with a number of practical life activities that help them practice taking care of themselves and the messes we make throughout life. Much of their work also helps with hand-eye coordination and prepares their muscles for the complexities and control required for writing.

Students swept up a mess of leaves in a hula hooped circle, counted toy pumpkins, washed actual pumpkins, and refined their muscular control, transferring liquid from one pumpkin receptacle into another, using an eyedropper and a scoop.
